Volkswagen Wins The 2012 Sustainovation Award
The award is given for VW’s commitment to reducing environmental impact as seen through their vehicles at Larry Roesch Volkswagen.
The “Think Blue. Factory.” program has been adopted by Volkswagen to assist in making the production of its vehicles more compatible with the protection of the environment. By 2018, the target goal is to reduce energy and water consumption, along with waste production, in addition to solvent and carbon dioxide emissions, by 25 percent.
This particular award is annually given by a group of independent professors and journalists who look at all the ideas and technologies developed and integrated all throughout Germany, taking into account business success along with sustainable improvements to environmental efficiency. It is presented on behalf of the Altran Foundation. This year’s winners will have their name appear in WirtschaftsWoche magazine.
Hubert Waltl, a member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand with responsibility for Production and Logistics, commented that “Volkswagen’
Waltl continued by saying that “clean cars from clean factories not only relieve the burden on the environment, but are also increasingly expected by our customers. Our program strengthens our competitiveness and makes sense not only in environmental terms, but also economically.”
